Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask To Clear Pores : Photos, Review & Swatch

Origins is a popular cosmetic brand in the U.S and I have read rave reviews about their skin care products in particular. During my recent trip to the U.S, this is one of the brands that I wanted to get my hands on and I picked up a good bunch of products from Origins. I love face masks and this Origins Charcoal Mask was in my shopping list for a long time now ! Read on to know if it was worth all the hype. 

Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask


The origins clear improvement active charcoal mask comes in a transparent tube with a flip open cap, making the usage hygenic and mess free. The mask is dark grey in color and unlike what I expected, the mask is a not-so-thick paste and thus makes application really easy. As it reads in the tube, I wipe my face with a hot water towel to open my pores and then apply this mask. I feel the mask works effectively when done this way. I take two pea size amount for my face and neck and apply it evenly on my skin. It spreads easily as it glides on my skin. It causes a light bearable burning sensation on my skin and since I have read about it already, I ignored it. I leave it to dry completely, which takes 15-20 mins and then wash it off gently with cold running water. No need of any tugging or pulling and mask itself doesn't tighten the skin too much. I see all the tiny black heads getting washed off and skin looks super clear and clean ! It retains the natural oils and moisture in the skin too that the skin feels soft and supple. I use this mask once a week to get rid of all the dirt and grime that my skin would have accumulated over the week.

  1. Sounds to be a very effective product. Have you used Glamglow one? Origins one seems to be quite similar to that.

    1. No Eesha, haven't tried glamglow yet ! The Origins mask has mixed reviews but I am glad it worked for me :D
